I've heard this since Moyes has been in charge... Maybe the reason we've become a fucking good team ? and, more importantly, a hard team to play against ? is because...
I dont play the FIFA 11s or the Championship Managers anymore, I'm too old for that now... but did anyone hear Moyes on the touchline yesterday?? He was playing that game like X, X, X, (yes another X) and Y (to Bainsey) then (shit there's no) SQUARE ?...
David Moyes ? I love you, despite what maybe 75% (with Ciaran maybe 75.1%) may think on here...
In Moyes I Trust. He was on that pitch like he was still a centre-half for Celtic (although we know Moyesie can do better than that if he had an English passport). I wanna get in that Family Enclosure near him... is that good for the kids? Well, yea... they'll be learning the tricks from the trade... [to Ciaran:] ? as long as Neville's not on the bench!
Do any of you guys and girls (or Evertonians' wives) love the fact Moyes had an opposition ? not just Stoke but more importantly to himself ? Tony Pullis? And people forget: the team plays the team but, in Moyes's 'eyes', he's playing the person 10 yards away from him. They're coming to Goodison thinking... ... ... ... anyway.
A lot of this is never touched but I guarantee you ? and I hope someone will back me up here ? that the boys do it on the pitch but, in a manager's eyes, you're playing the other manager.
I've never ever seen a manager like Moyes who plays the game from the touchline; that's why I think, as Evertonians, we have an added bonus from what passes the white line... and more importantly, WE HAVE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL.
And in amongst that something special, we have... DAVID MOYES.
Onslaught please, ToffeeWeb!

We played considerably poorer yesterday when we started to play two up front.

After nearly 9 years of Moyes (this is only my opinion), I'm sick of strikers running wide for the ball, negative tactics and hanging on to 1-0's. Remember when we did finish 4th with a negative goal difference? Yes we got some wins, but it's not entertaining is it.

That's the problem with Everton ? there's no quick thinking, no free movement.
Maybe that's why we're so lob sided ? only the players near the touchline can hear his instructions, what a load of nonsense.

The key to coaching is...better players
Ours aren't good enough to have their own internal coach/voice telling them hold, hold,make the run micky, NOW(plays ball into space that micky or who ever will be when the ball gets there.
Moyes is a total defensively minded control freak and Neville is his Prophet.
Mind you Baines seems to do his best work when playing towards the Park End where he hasn't got Moyes in his earhole all afternoon...Hmmm.

He must have a good voicebox on him directing every single play over the crowd.
